Discover the world of deltiology (the study and collection of postcards)! Deltiologist Peter Meggison will present a session on postcard collecting as a hobby. His presentation will include the history and development of postcards as a means of communication from the late 19th century, through the 20th century, and into our present century.  He will share a wide array of postcard views from his vast collection including many views of Westport from the early 20th century.  He will describe what deltiologists seek out for their collections. Peter Meggison is a Professor of Computer Technology at Massasoit Community College, Brockton, and has been collecting postcards for 60 years.  He is a Westport resident and he has been a member of the Rhode Island Postcard Club since 1964.
